´Til the last breath. The aim is to persuade the smoker to cast the stubs at the right place. The ashtray screen will give a random emoticon+sound answer when activated, rewarding the citizen for his kind act with a positive and funny gesture, trying to put a smile upon the smoker´s face.
When was the last time anyone chose Walking instead of a Moving Walkway? I certainly can’t remember & anyways, who wants to walk that boring route. The Magic Slatewalk will change all that with a little Magic & Fun. The Slatewalk is basically the Magic slate(that amazing lo-fi toy when you were little) on a giant scale. This time you don’t need a stylus or even fingers, just let your feet or trolley do the drawing. Besides being a whole lot of fun, the exercise you get along with it makes it a combo you won’t want to miss! ‘Nuff Said.
Nobody's waiting to find a bin to throw an old gum, it's easier to throw it in the street, anywhere in the street.
It's amazing the number of old chewing gums that is stuck on the ground, a billion of small colored spots living on the pavement. When the gum is quite new, it follow you home and stick everywhere to finally make a mess.
Dispose a plexiglass box in a park or in a street where pedestrians are passing by.

Air-drying on a clothesline or rack instead of machine is an easy way to cut energy usage and also save money. With "Who Wants to be a Laundry-naire?" you can turn a chore into a game show! Watch the "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" style gameshow on the clip-on screen, and buzz in your answers by pressing the letter keys beside each clothes line (can play with a partner...good incentive to turn laundry into a social event with other family members).
We often think that public bathrooms are a dirty mess, and most of the time we are right. One of the things that contributes to it, is people peeing on the floor. Sometimes they are just lazy, irresponsible or drunk, etc. So to help on the 'pee' problem it would be nice if we could play a little game to give all the guys some focus while relieving themselves. It would work like the famous GENIUS® game, having it installed right in the middle of the public urinals. The more you hit on the right colors more points you'll get. And I guess the more you had to drink longer you will play.
Many people in the world they do not unplug the chargers of the cell phones, When people don't disconnect their charges they are consuming a lot of energy is not being used.

In this colourless city at the bus stop, where it’s too boring to stand. Where there’s nothing interesting.. How could the bus stops turned into meeting points,encourage people to use more the means of transportation and make the city beautiful at the same time? This concept will change our point of view for people around us and we will make us part of a work of art. Submitted by Carlos.
In using fun to make people help each other, we asked the question, can we get people to hold a door open for other people?
With "The People Counter", motion sensors and sound will be used to get people to continue holding the door open for others. Once another person walks through the door, sensors will react and cause audio to play. The audio will give the person holding the door a simple reminder to help others, in a fun and new way

What is the matter? We would like people to recycle their cans. But how? The can crasher combines two things: the first one is a trash. When a can is put in, it follows a funny path and lands on a platform. The second thing is a punching device. Smash it with your hand hard enough to reach the top. If you do so, the bell rings and a heavy metal piece falls down and crashes your can! It can then be recycled. If you are not strong enough to make the bell rings, ask a friend or a man who is passing by! Everyone can take his chance to crash the cans!

Consistently communicate creatively simple & short water conservation messages'. Put up illustrations on water conservation on the ceiling of the hair-washing cubicle. When patrons/clients are reclining on the chair to get their hair washed, the illustration will be right in their vision. The sound and feel of the water on the head and the message above will engage the various senses of the person to make a sub-conscious impact. In those 3+ minutes of hair wash, the person will have 2 options – close eyes or see a beautiful & often funny illustration.

The “Conscious Shower” is an alternative to reduce the amount of water spent in the shower in a fun way. To do that, a water meter has to be installed in the shower. It’s necessary to set up an amount of water enough for a shower (eg. 40 liters). So it will be possible to check in a screen how much water is being spent during the shower.
Many young adults spend a lot of their time playing video games. What if you could actually learna by achieving objectives in games? Instead of only earning points you could also grow in knowledge. The video game industry in general should focus on games being more of a learning platform than a solely entertainment platform. The software should be developed by the gaming console companies and should be entirely open-source, in terms of content that could be incorporated into the games.

Fed up of having to pay to use jukeboxes in public places? What if you didn't have to pay to listen to music? My idea encourages people to recycle and in return are rewarded with one credit of music per object which is deposited into the bin. They are then given a choice of music to be played and listened to by people in a public area. This doesn't just benefit the user, but is also making the planet a greener place.

Close driving is one of the greatest hazards on the road. Sometimes, because of distractions or lack of depth perception, people aren't even aware of how close they are to another driver or object. The Proximity Stereo detects when a driver is coming up too quickly on another object or car, and switches the music in the car to something the driver does not want to hear, not allowing the driver to return to his or her favourite music until the driver has backed off to a safe distance from the object.

Too many of us don't come to a complete stop at stop-signed intersections. You do it. I do it. But what if there was some visual feedback to encourage people to come to a complete stop? I propose 'Stop-Show', a system which used electronics to detect a full stop and then rewards the driver with a fun light show on the stop sign. The 'light show' would serve two key purposes... (1) Indicating / confirming that a full stop has been achieved, and (2) providing the driver with a little bit of entertainment, encouraging them to be a little more consistent with their safe-driving practices.
